Russian Blue is Top Kitty at CFA-Iams Cat Show
The cat's owners, Teresa Keiger and Brad Miller of Greenboro, N.C., were happy and surprised that their deep green-eyed, silver-furred feline beat out hundreds of other cats during two days of tough competition. This is the first time a cat of this particular breed has scooped up the prize.
Runner took home 400 pounds of Iams cat food, but, according to his owners, freeze-dried chicken is the kitty's ultimate treat.
The road to this championship hasn't been easy. "[It's a] huge amount of work, it's a lot of traveling, a lot of showing, competition every weekend," Miller told PEOPLE Pets. But it's all been worth it, "[I'm] ecstatic!" he added.
